Drive through Mequon, and you’ll see why CNN and Money Magazine ranked this community as one of the top twenty places to live in the United States. With tree-lined streets and statuesque homes, Mequon has grown considerably since its beginnings as an outpost along the Milwaukee River.
The area was originally home to the Potawatomi and Menominee Indians, before European settlers arrived and started trading along the river. The English and French were the first to arrive, and the German and Irish followed. Soon, the beginnings of the town of Mequon were formed.
Located just north of Milwaukee, Mequon has many desirable community amenities. While it still retains its rural heritage with low-density development, it’s also just minutes away from downtown Milwaukee. A population of only 22,000 makes it small enough to feel like a close community, but large enough to offer all the services you could want.
Mequon boasts parks and five golf courses, and access to Lake Michigan makes it easy to take a break and ”get away from it all.” Its proximity to Milwaukee makes Mequon an ideal setting for both business and culture. While Mequon residents can look forward to a relaxed and idyllic environment along Lake Michigan, they also have the city within comfortable distance.
The schools in Mequon are consistently ranked in the top of the state, and Concordia University also makes its home here. The Homestead High School serves the community, as do Steffen and Lakeshore Middle schools and Wilson, Donges Bay and Oriole Lane Grade Schools.
Homes in Mequon range from state-of-the-art new construction to stately older homes. Whatever you are looking for, Mequon is sure to deliver both tranquility and excitement.
